To cap off the holiday season, our Junior School hosted its annual Primary Christmas Concert this week, much to the delight of proud parents and teachers. Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 students sang, danced and acted to holiday music on stage in the Junior School gymnasium.
The Kindergarten students performed “Suzy Snowflake”, “Santa’s Helpers” and “Must be Santa”. The Grade 1 students performed “The Marvelous Toy” and “The Toyshop”. The Grade 2 students performed “Santa Bring Me Snow”, “Seven Feet of Snow” and “Christmas Spirit”. The Primary Choir performed “Vive le Vent” and “Silent Night”.
After the concert, Santa Claus visited the Junior School, handing out candy canes and posing for photos with students.

While the onstage performances were great, we also think the students’ reflections on the concert are just as cute:

Lorenzo: The singing, cookies and juice box were my favourite.
Hannah: I could see my momma and she also waved at me – twice!
